This hearty nutrient-packed winter salad with beets and grapefruit is the perfect antidote to an "empty calorie" binge.

Ingredients

  • 5 medium beets, stems removed
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled
  • 1 cup sprouts
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Wash beets and pat dry. Place beets on a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. Fold foil around the beets to create a sealed pouch. Place the pouch on a cookie sheet and bake until beets are tender. Cooking time varies on the size of the beets. After 30 minutes, pierce the beets with a fork. If they are still hard, return to the oven and test them every 15 minutes until they are tender.
  • Remove from oven and stand until they are cool enough to handle. Use your hands to peel away the skin. Slice into bite size wedges and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  • Line the bottom of a large bowl with sprouts and top with beets and grapefruit. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and goat cheese.
  • Serve immediately.
